This Refuse Fascism protest was the second Saturday in a row of that organization's protests looking forward to the upcoming mess in November, when Trump is expected to attempt to stop the counting of votes while in-person votes from GOP supporters have him ahead and mail-in votes have yet to be counted. Refuse Fascism's supporters are of course among a great many people who fear that a second Trump term will lead to much worse government behavior than in the past. There are also widespread fears of "massive civil unrest" or even outright civil war(!) stemming from a disputed election. The Transition Integrity Project included a wide range of government officials, campaign officials, and national security "experts" and wargamed a variety of election scenarios. All of them except a Biden landslide ended in huge street protests where both Trumpers and progressive duke it out in the streets and massive civil unrest follows. The scenarios never reached Jan 20 because they all had Congress deadlocking on Jan 6, with the House certifying Biden and the Senate Trump as "winners."
